While the EU continues to slander our not for profit Vaccine resulting in a reluctance to take it across Europe by people who have been brainwashed by this agenda.....The UK using mainly that very vaccine are opening up society with deaths down to a handful per day as the EU death rate climbs into the thousands per day with panic everywhere. We all knew that the EU would have to compete with the likes of India on trade going forward, we didn't expect them to be competing with them on Covid death rates

Even Barnier has raised the possibility of Frexit:

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/macron-told-to-learn-lessons-of-brexit-or-france-will-follow-pw5cgm0fd

Before life in the time of lockdown I was in the habit of occasionally visiting an English friend of mine for a long week-end in the French village he lives in whilst running a small cafe/bar with his French wife.

Its like an extension of Farageland there (as the South East, UK is,) with little affection for the EU, and in some cases hostility.

I realise its the parochial view and will likely be trounced vote-wise by the luvvies of the Ile-de-France but their admiration of Brexit was surprising.

It also puzzles me why the two areas of the respective countries closest to each other (Kent and Hauts de France/Upper Normandy) are among the most hostile to the EU. I would have thought it the other way round as there is a great intereaction of casual tourism. 

Cliftonville apart, there is no great  immigration 'issue' in these parts so there is no great impact upon jobs or services as seems to have been a factor of 'red wall' voting.

The biggest concern of the EU at this moment in time should be financial. The first Covid debt/loan/hand out issue caused much friction, and has even been opposed by the German courts. I'm not sure if its underway yet, but Macron is desperate for his 5 billion Euros no doubt. Portugal has applied apparently. Who will be next?

Now the third covid wave indicates more borrowing to be necessary. The UK contribution is missed and hostility in Gerrmany to such bail outs is rising.

Its been compared to a group of friends in a restaurant each ordering the most expensive meal on the menu for themselves in full knowledge that the bill will be shared equally, but even then at the end of the meal only Germany had remembered to bring the chequebook.

In fairness there has been a lot of such point scoring by either side, Clément Beaune the French minister being by far the worst culprit.

Let's just hope it is all whitewashed by the amount of aid sent to India.

Probably more useful explaining it to Bill himself rather than his small boating oar.

When calling somebody thick, probably best not to spell the next simple 5 letter word that most children could spell, wrong.

Oh dear! Another epic fail from bird-brain. Not only is your solitary sentence in defiance of English grammar and spelling, it also demonstrates yet again that you struggle to understand even the most basic expressions. I will repeat what Macron said one last time:

Asked whether a Leave or Remain vote in France could have ended with the same result, Mr Macron told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show: "Yes, probably. Probably in a similar context. But our context was very different so I don't want to take any bets."

Is it the fact that his comment contains a "disguised" conditional that taxes your tiny brain beyond its miniscule capacity? Perhaps it didn't help that Macron was speaking rather clumsily in a second language? Either way it ought to be clear to all but the severely challenged that the phrase, "Yes probably. Probably in a similar context. But our context was very different..." is to be understood as claiming something like, "If we had a similar situation to the UK the French would probably vote for brexit too, BUT we (French) have a very different context, so who knows". 

Every opinion poll of the French population's attitude to remaining in the EU shows them in favour of doing so. I note you have not come forward with a poll saying the contrary despite your lie that I am wrong about this FACT. 

Learn to read things properly, and with at least some degree of critical self-awareness. It would save you making such an embarrassment of yourself on a daily basis.

just think of the number of times I've been called thick, as well as other things, it can work both ways

Yet another blatant lie for which you have not the slightest evidence. And BTW, despite your obvious desire that more EU citizens die from Covid, the fact remains that the UK has the highest total of deaths of any European nation.

Frankly, I couldn't give a damn what an intellectually retarded old gammon like you thinks. Anyone with even the slightest grasp of linguistics would know that all these pathetic attempts to claim I have any other identities on this site is utter nonsense. The fact you could even post a piece of childish "playground" tosh like this shows you are risibly unaware of your own crass stupidity.

I'm still laughing, and I'm not the only one. No doubting that.

Really! So you don't think it's possible that in the last three months they might have actually upped their vaccination rates? Perhaps you might like to take a look at some up-to-date figures:

Surely we all have to hope that they do up their vaccine rates asap.

We do not want an explosion on our door step spreading infection and possible variants.

The sooner the Western world gets it's act together the sooner we can help the so-called third world.

Well, since you obviously find it difficult to interpret a simple bar chart, perhaps this article from that famous EU loving newspaper, The Telegraph will help you realise your claim about the current state of the  EU vaccine programme is a lie:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/04/17/whisper-quietly-europes-vaccination-programme-taking-could/

Whisper it quietly: Europe's vaccination programme is taking off - and could catch the UK

It was inevitable  - but oiks who define themselves first and foremost as being anti EU as opposed to actually what's best and in the the UKs interests will I guess now have to find something else to rant on about.

Perhaps you should try reading my posts and the articles I have linked. None of them dispute that the UK has done excellently on vaccine roll-out, and has vaccinated a far greater percentage of the population than the EU.  They simply refute any claim, like that put forward by SC, who said, "I feel the sick people are the EU not giving out the vaccine when they can". Even your graphs show that to be patently false. If you can find anything in my posts or in the Telegraph article which claims the EU has vaccinated as well as the UK then feel free to quote it. The "reality" that I and the Telegraph article put forward is that the EU is significantly improving its vaccine roll out, not your attempt to impute to us an absurd claim that it has been as good as the UK.

One thing that does remain a fact, however, is that the chaotic government response to covid prior to the vaccine roll out means the UK still tops the table of European countries for numbers of covid deaths.

The success of Brexit relies on the EUs vaccine roll out being crap. That is how bad it is. 😂

It's interesting that the EU exports to the UK have fallen far more than our exports to them.
We are buying more British goods.

13th in deaths per million of the population.
